  • Nathaniel Clyne celebrates scoring the winning goal in Southampton's 2-1 win at Arsenal in a League Cup third round clash from 2014

The forward had failed to score a Premier League goal in 2018 but struck twice in his side's 3-2 triumph at the Emirates Stadium, including heading in the victor in the 81st minute.

In Arsenal's defense, Arsene Wenger had made seven changed from the side that played so well against CSKA Moscow, but it wasn't an impressive start.

Shane Long gave them the lead after 17 minutes, nipping in ahead of defender Shkodran Mustafi.

Welbeck then grabbed his first in seven league games when his effort from outside the box was deflected past goalkeeper Alex McCarthy via the unfortunate Maya Yoshida's boot. They drew level again through substitute Charlie Austin but ended up losing after Arsenal's Danny Welbeck scored with a late header.

"I thought it was a good performance from our point of view in contrast with what we were able to produce against West Ham", Hughes, whose side are 18th in the standings and three points from safety, told reporters.

Mohamed Elneny was also sent off for a tamer push on Cedric Soares as the game descended further into chaos in stoppage time, although Arsenal were beyond caring at that point.

But Southampton couldn't hold on, Welbeck's second of the day - a header from close range - securing all three points for the Gunners. And I've seen him behave when it was really hard and tough, so he deserves everything he gets.

Arsene Wenger admits Arsenal made life hard for themselves in the 3-2 victory over struggling Southampton on Sunday.

Danny Welbeck both scored and assisted in a Premier League match for the first time since September (against Bournemouth), which was also the last time he netted a league goal.

"I'm personally very happy and pleased for him, because this guy has gone through some hard times". Long almost scored another, but he was flagged for offsides.

- Mark Hughes has now lost each of his 11 trips to Arsenal in the Premier League, only Harry Redknapp against Manchester United (15) is on a longer wait for an away win against an opponent in the competition.

"I personally feel for what we have gone through and the way we have recovered, this team deserves huge credit because we were questioned really".

"In the cup games he played earlier in the season he played as a wing-back and I don't think that suited him as much".
